~Interesting Non-Surgical/Surgical Books~

*************************

As many of you know, I do a lot of research (and I mean a lot of research) on surgically related news and information.

Well, (and this is really interesting), while looking for info on unique surgical topics I came across 4 different - rather unique books - related to 4 popular surgically related procedures.

1 - Heart Surgery - Heart Disease

2 - Cosmetic Surgery

3 - Gallstones - Preventing Gallbladder Removal

4 - ENT - non surgical procedure

Once you take a look at these books, I think you'll see why I say they are unique and interesting.

I've put those four topics and links to each of the books on the following pages of my site.

When you go to the Surgical Tech Books, look under "Unique & Interesting":

~Surgical Tech Starts Own Business~

*************************

You'd be surprised how often I explain to individuals about how I started my SurgicalTechSuccess.com business.

And, as I'm sure you can believe, I never have a problem talking about my career and path that lead me to where I am today.

It's very exciting to talk about how to become successful in and around the world of surgery & I love hearing about surgical techs who really take a little initiative and create a business based on or around the world of surgery.

AND I have also had the pleasure of meeting quite a few Surgical Techs who not only work as a Surgical Tech in some form or capacity, but also run a Surgical Tech Business "on the side".

SO, if you are looking for a way to start your own business utilitizing your surgical tech education, here are a couple of ideas/stories to think about.

1) There is a surgical tech educator out there by the name of Mr Tom Walker. Not only does he teach surgical technology but Mr Walker has created a surgical tech business "from scratch".

He took an idea and a business plan to create "Medical Workshop Specialists".

His workshops are quite diverse and include wound closure and certification preparation (to name a few).

Mr Walker also has plans to incorporate other surgically related workshops into his business in the near future.

Contact Info: Thomas Walker, Director - 731-267-5070 -- Julia Walker, Assistant Director - 731-267-2599, jandtwalker@aeneas.net , medicalworkshopspecialist@myspace.com

--2) There are Surgical Tech Veterans out there who have created a business in their local area to "contract out" Surgical Techs on an as needed/PRN basis.

Basically, they get a data base of Surgical Techs, find out when they are available to work in the local area, get all of their surgical specialty details, and then start advertising their company to local facilities (to include surgeons offices, same day surgery centers, hospitals, etc).

At this point whenever a facility needs a Surgical Tech on short notice, they contact one of the local ST agencies and pay a premium for the service.

Surgical Techs working for the placement agency usually make a nice wage and the ST placement agency makes a very nice wage also.

--The two ideas above may spark a little excitement or "Surgically Creative Flow" that may help YOU launch a surgical tech venture.

If I can do it and they can do it, YOU CAN DO IT too!

AND listen, you don't have to think about your "other business" being in the field of Surgical Technology.

There are plenty of great ideas and avenues to pursue while you're working in surgery.

Yet another awesome benefit of being a surgical tech, you can set yourself up to do other things of interest.

Many of you who know me also know that I am a Guest Speaker, Certified Personal Trainer, Writer, and of course Surgical Tech Internet Entrepenuer.

If you are interested in getting a surgical tech business started, need an idea or a little motivation, contact me on the following page and I'll try to help you get started in the right direction.
